Son, father, brother, nephew, uncle and friend, Stanley Richard Wilson (Richie), departed this life on Friday, November 6th with his loving mother by his side.
Richie was loved beyond measure and those that are left behind can’t imagine a world without him in it, but we must remember that our earthly loss is heaven’s gain. Richie made peace with the Lord on June 6, 2020 and with God’s grace and forgiveness we can be reunited in heaven one day.
